Am I Better Suited to Have Lived in the 40’s and 50’s?

5 Nov

Am I better suited to have lived in the 1940’s and 1950’s?

I was talking to a friend about this earlier today. Well, actually my future wife and soulmate, but she doesn’t know that yet. Ha!

Having not lived in the 40’s and 50’s personally I have to go off of what I see in Alfred Hitchcock movies. You know, ‘North by Northwest’, ‘To Catch A Thief’, ‘Rear Window’ and many more masterpieces! Or maybe I just have the hots for Grace Kelly when she was in her 20’s and single!! Probably a bit of all of the above! lol

In this time period all the men wore suits, or at least slacks. All the women were mostly in dresses and so elegantly dressed! People had manners, class, sophistication, and most of all kindness for each other!

What happened to society where it slowly decided to forget all of these wonderful parts of life! What happened to the elegance of our everyday clothes we wear? What happened to the kindness to each other? When did we go from being happy in life to making our lives only about the pursuit of money and things?

Don’t get me wrong, I like the feel of denim as my everyday pant garment, but in no way does a pair of jeans compare with the elegance, flow, style of a nice pair of slacks! Pair it with a nice jacket and cuffed/collared shirt and as in the 40’s/50/s where everyone looks like a million bucks!

I sometimes am described by my friends as “quiet”. Well, it is because I see so much in life that should not be. I’ve pondered the thought of moving to a very ancient city in Europe, or a uncontaminated South American country. I hear Cuba has cars from this time period. Perhaps their isolation from the bad influences of the culture of the USA for the last 30+ years has kept them in a time bubble? I traveled to Colombia a few years back and I can guarantee it IS in this time bubble. But the USA is my home, where my family is, and to leave all the many things I love here would be something I’d need to consider very carefully, indeed!

The life that I see in the Alfred Hitchcock movies, might be just that! A movie made to take people to a better place for a few hours in the theater. Perhaps, life is life no matter what decade or location?

I suppose the answer is to find a like minded person in life and create that ideal life for your own family!

Oh god, I’m a future cult leader!

Dear Person I live With Please Do Not Touch My Dinner!

7 Oct

Dear person I live with,

Please do not touch my dinner, look at my food, swipe your fork across my plate “just to have a taste for next time” or even think about MY FOOD vs YOUR FOOD as you obviously do with each meal of every day!

I realize you have what is called “Food Envy Syndrome”. It is a common disease but rarely diagnosed. I can confirm from an overwhelming nightly monumental amount of evidence that you are suffering from this affliction.

Two nights ago, you were inspecting my Subway sandwich and dumped it on the floor then tried to resurrect it as though nothing happened! Tonight you decided to put my dinner in the fridge rendering it a near cardboard plank of edibleness.

I will help you get help if you so desire. However, if you do not this current “arrangement” is not working and I’m not afraid to seek law enforcement assistance!

I know you are calculating each time you look across the table how you can take my food! I know you are planning raids on my doggie-bag leftovers when I’m not home! I can see it in your eyes how you plan to raid the kitchen in the night to take bites out of my uneaten cheeseburger! It is not mice in the fridge, it is YOU my dear sick table co-eater!

I am going to continue this living arrangement for only just so much longer I warn you, because I know you can’t help yourself with your Food Envy Syndrome! But, having said that, you should know I just took one little bite out of all your chocolate covered Oreo Cookies while you were out, that you keep in the fridge.

I’m sure it was the mice!
